" I gave Sharp Practice 2 a positive review when it came out and played several games across the time period. It was certainly an improvement on the first edition. However, I have hardly played it since, and I suspect that's because the various Dan Mersey rule sets for the period have captured my attention. My midweek wargame club (Prestwick) isn't back playing yet because of problems with the venue, so when a member suggested a game at home with Sharp Practice, I dusted down my set of the rules…."

Lardy rules are a bit from most so I find it easy to mess up the rules if I've not played them for a while but usually worth the effort.

Definitely a BIG improvement from the first edition. We play them about once a month or so…fun for Peninsular and F&IW action. I like the skirmish aspect and try not play too much rank/file in the rules. Good stuff all around.

If you go to the TFL SP page, look in the files section, some really good QRS for the game…will help with remembering the mechanics fast.
